Pros:
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Moves fairly well off the ball on offense
Adequate playmaker
Decent rebounder
Decent defender that can get steals
Above average athlete

Cons:
Needs to improve his shooting

Summary:
Panagiotis Kalaitzakis is a skilled, energetic swingman that has been putting up fairly solid numbers in Lithuania’s top league, the LKL.  He has been roughly 14 points per game in his team’s first 19 games of the season, and he also rebounds the ball well.  He will need to improve his outside shot and take better care of the basketball, but his ability to score the basketball could make him a borderline second round candidate for the upcoming draft.
